The big star celebrated becoming the first player to score in five different World Cups and the victory over Ghana: "It was important" • The Africans are very angry about the penalty that was whistled to them



Until he hangs up his boots and no matter how fit he is, Cristiano Ronaldo will always be in the headlines.

After starting quite a few sports news releases around the world in recent days in light of the fact that he officially left Manchester United, yesterday (Thursday) the Portuguese phenomenon once again entered the history pages of world football by scoring in his team's victory over Ghana 2:3 in the first match of the World Cup in Qatar.

In the 65th minute, in a 0:0 situation, Ronaldo squeezed a very borderline penalty and was accurate from the penalty spot.

With this goal, Ronaldo became the second oldest scorer in the history of the World Cup, at the age of 37 years and 292 days, with only the Cameroonian Roja Mille ahead of him after he scored in the 1994 World Cup at the age of 42 years and 39 days.

In addition, Ronaldo scored a goal in all ten international tournaments in which he took part - World Cup and Euro.

"It was a beautiful moment, my fifth World Cup, I'm very proud," Ronaldo said after the game, "We won and started on the right foot. It's a very important victory, we know that in these championships, the first game is very important. It was difficult, but we deservedly won."

Proud of his side after their first match at #Qatar2022 👍

Portugal coach Fernando Santos analyzed after the game and said: "In the beginning we were too passive, and from the 35th minute onwards we improved. It was not easy, but I told my players to be patient, the opponent kept with all their players. We conceded goals out of nowhere, and we must not concede Goals out of nowhere. The result just doesn't make sense, and we'll have to improve things. What's important is to take three points, one more win and we're on."

Raphael Lao, who celebrated his first goal in the national team after coming on as a substitute, was excited: "I waited for this moment for a long time and I'm happy that we won. We prepared very well for this game, we knew exactly what Ghana would do. We were European champions and I think we are also the favorites to win the World Cup. Whether we are adults or younger, we come to win."

In Ghana, there was great anger at the refereeing.

Coach Otto Addo criticized the penalty that Ronaldo took, with which he also broke the record.

"Maybe Cristiano got an award for being a star. Ask the referee, I just saw a commotion in the box," he said, "I don't know if the VAR noticed or what happened, but according to the cameras it was a foul in our favor at all. It wasn't a penalty and all See it, then why, because it's Ronaldo?"
